I hosted a Painting Party for a sweet 11 year old’s birthday. Her mama is one of my best friends and attending a craft night where we painted 12″ x12″ canvas. So she thought it would be the perfect birthday party for her 11 year old who decided she wanted a small crafting party with friends.
So I cleaned, a TON. :) and got my craft space ready for ten 11 and 12 year olds.
I set up the tables with brown craft paper and streamers. I had some new empty paint cans from Home Depot that I place in the center with brushes and pencils.
I set each space with the blank canvas, a white plate for there paints, and a paint swatch decorated with a felt flower and some cute stickers.
We had a trim and paint bar where I set up trims, pompoms, jewels, buttons, ribbons, and stickers to decorate there painting after it was dry. The paint was all set out on a tray so they could see all the colors together and get what they needed.
I made some fun streamers that I was hoping gave the feel of paint drips of splatters. I found this wonderful streamer idea over at Oh Happy Day, and also saw a super cute painting party using it at Katies Pencil Box.
I was told all the girls raved about the party to there parents. :) So I think it was a success. I didn’t take any pictures during the party as I was a bit busy and wanted to reserve the privacy of the girls attending.
It was a lot of fun, and I wasn’t really involved to much after explaining how to get started. All the girls did great, and left with canvases full of cupcakes, ranbows, flowers, inspiration words, and total cuteness.
Thanks for stopping by!
